A Change Of Plan…
When we book our overseas trips, we usually do so several months to a year in advance to be able to use our frequent flyer miles. I’d never been to Vienna, and le Monsieur hadn’t been since he was a teen, so we decided to make that the primary destination for this year’s trip (with a side trip to Salzburg for a couple of days and a few days in London at the end). Booked the flights last summer for this summer, all set. Or so we thought…
We had both really enjoyed visiting the Bourgogne region of France last year, and knew we eventually wanted to return. And we kept talking about it and reading articles about the region, food, and wine. A couple of weeks ago we acknowledged that neither of us was as enthusiastic about Vienna as we were about returning to Bourgogne, so made the switch. (Fortunately, we only had to rebook the flights from and back to London, as the long-haul portion of the trip didn’t change.)
Rather than staying in Lyon this time we’re looking at the area between Macon and Dijon, probably Beaune. We’re still keeping the London portion for the last few days.
The photo above was taken at the La Moutarderie Edmond Fallot (mustard boutique and museum) in Beaune. (I’m so short I had to stand on tiptoes to get my face in the hole! 😆 ) We made a short stop there driving from Lyon to Paris. Still enjoying some of the mustards we brought home!
Even in warmer months, I always bring a travel wrap for the plane or unexpected cold. Many of you have mentioned that you’re allergic or sensitive to wool or cashmere, so you may be interested in this wool-free wrap from emme, offered in black and plum (shown above).
